Duck Day

15th Annual Duck Day

What Is Duck Day?

Duck Day is an annual Naugatuck Chamber Special Event. Over the past 14 years, the annual Duck Race and Festival has taken place downtown Naugatuck with over 5,000 attendees. Duck Day created a fun-filled day where family and friends gathered, enjoyed great music, tasted yummy food, shopped talented crafters and business vendors, played games and rode carnival rides! All while they waited to watch the highly anticipated Duck Race, as thousands of rubber ducks were dropped by a payloader down the Naugatuck River and raced to the finish line with the first prize of $5,000 CASH!

What does one $5.00 duck race ticket get me? One duck to be raced in the Naugatuck river for a grand prize of $5,000 CASH! Each ticket cost is $5.00; with $2.50 (50%) going right back to the non-profit partner you choose. Make sure to select Naugatuck YMCA on your checkout screen.
